This doesn't appear to be the same query as we were shown earlier.

This would be the issue. You haven't told PostgreSQL anything about your
hardware. The defaults are somewhat modest.

http://www.postgresql.org/docs/7.4/static/runtime-config.html

Skim through the run-time configuration parameters that can be set in
postgresql.conf.

Pay particular attention to:
      * shared_buffers (you may be best with 2000 or 4000)
      * effective_cache_size (set to 50% of ram size if dedicated db
        machine)
      * random_page_cost (good disks will bring this down to a 2 from a
        4)
